Aren't people who claim to be attracted to and only have sex with people who are of the same gender referred to as gay?
Are you saying that because you are a heterosexual male, you are sexually attracted to little girls?

Do you not understand the difference between a young child and an adult?

That's disturbing.

All the research from the past 60 years shows that children (both boys and girls) are far more at risk of being sexually molested by a heterosexual male.

So your statement is based on ignorance and prejudice.

I do believe once the "child" is post puberty, the molester has their preferences as to gender.

A man does not have to be a pedophile in order for it to be wrong for him to be in the shower room with girls. Likewise, a lesbian doesn't have to be a pedophile either. The rules should be the same for straight men and lesbians here for the same reasons. If we were worried about pedophiles, we would allow straight men who are not pedophiles into girls locker rooms and just keep the pedophiles out. Why is it we insist that ALL MEN stay out of the girls locker room and not just pedphiles and why wouldn't the same logic apply to lesbians?

I don't care whether my dd's gym teacher is male/female/lesbian/gay. I would, however, expect a man or a lesbian to stay out of the showers.
Face it.

The vast majority of child molesters are heterosexual men - with a heterosexual adult sexual orientation.

Not straight women, not lesbians, not gay men.

A small minority of child molesters are true pedophiles with no adult sexual orientation. (about 7% according to one of the largest studies of over 4000 child molesters)

I wonder if they are also the ones who would say that without their religion and the threat of hell, they would rape, kill, steal etc.

Should gays be allowed to teach gym class? Um, I'm pretty certain that P.E. has the highest ratio of gay teachers. And it's been that way for a long time.

I think they should be allowed to teach BUT I do not think they should be in the locker room. I see no reason that a teacher should be in the locker room when the children are dressing/showering unless there is some sort of disturbance or issues going on that need to be answered. There are a few things wrong with the logic here. I read that 1/3 of the pedos consider themselves homosexual. Homosexual pedos often position themselves where they have access to children, their "feed". Some here seem extremely naive about the sexual drive. When you are talking about someone who is a teen female, for instance, they really don't have to be a pedophile for desire when they are looking at the naked female of that age. Seriously, would a man who accidentally saw a naked 16 year old and felt sexually aroused be a pedophile? Everything is there in place and developed. What operates here is "sexual boundaries". It would be better for everyone involved if the gym teacher stays out of the locker room. I remember in the 70's, our heterosexual gym teacher did not come in accept once when someone started having seizures. Yes, there could be homosexual students but that is much different than a person in power, the teacher being a homosexual. Keep in mind too that a lot of parents would not want to grant the homosexual teacher any slack so her being in the locker room could produce more problems than not and while you may not think that is right, it is the reality. The school is not the place to experiment or push "social" agendas. Not everyone but enough people have heard about the homosexual group that promoted "sex before 8 or it is too late" and that involved introducing children to the homosexual lifestyle and yes, those people were sick but we have a lot of sick people now. Why take the chance with our children? Let her teach but set boundaries and they should apply to both heterosexual and homosexual teachers.

McCarthyism is based on making accusations of disloyalty, subversion, etc. without proper regard for evidence.

Not supporting equality for LGBTQ is all the evidence one needs to be considered a hater.

But perhaps you don't view discrimination or marginalization as hateful. If not then congrats on being so privileged!

This ramped fear that being gay causes you to sexually abuse children is based on sheer ignorance.

My aunt was married to a gay man for around 45 years until he died a couple years ago. They had three children. He had boyfriends the entire time they were married. It is probably less common for gay people to marry people of the opposite sex today but much more common in the past.

BTW, are you inferring that since Sandusky was a pedophile, he could not be gay? According to the DSM-IV-TR® Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, pedophilia is defined as "a sexual preference for children, boys or girls or both, usually of prepubertal or early pubertal age. In Sandusky's case, he would first approach boys when they were 8–12 years-old. His relationships with them continued until at least they were in high school. The Sandusky charges were initiated at Clinton County High School, where a student made allegations of abuse against Sandusky. So he was not only attracted to prepubertal or early pubertal age children.
